We wandered over here from our hotel after a long day of travelling. Homemade chips and salsa arrived and we were already impressed. Once the margaritas were delivered we were in heaven! There was a large table in the same area as we were seated so we thought our service might be slow, but our server was very friendly and... More

I always get the shredded chicken Chimi with extra fundido sauce . The sauce is so creamy and good I order extra to dip all my bites in . I love the sweet salsa with small chunks and the homemade chips !!

I love coming to Paradiso it's my family's favorite place to eat we frequent here probably two to three times a month they have great specials, and of course the chips are free! However, every time I order a dish that comes with rice and beans the rice is so undercooked I dread accepting that is a side order in... More

I have been here a couple times and it was good both times. Will go back. Quick enough for a sit down lunch break. Not as quirky as Mexican Village and, for better or worse (u can decide), less authentic than the EGF Mexifood restaurant.

We always visit this place when we travel to Grand Forks. I had the macho combo and the tamale and chile relleno were the best things on the plate. It's a huge restaurant, casual atmosphere and fast service. There's usually a wait to get in so be prepared. Prices are reasonable. They could improve on the cleanliness. The menus could... More

While the chips are free, the dinner is still extra. The Monday food special got us into the establishment but with the required must buy two beverages made our reasonable price meal quite expensive we felt and won't do that again. With that said the food was great and our server was even better. Fantastic job.
